Die Sinking on track-controlled 5-axis machines
Through overlapping movements in all axes, Die Sinking enables the generation of a variety of shapes, which in some cases are impossible to achieve with any other processing system.
Copper, tungsten copper and graphite are used as the electrode materials in Die Sinking on our five-axis Die Sinking machines. The workpiece is created through spark formation, from the electrode to the workpiece resulting in a negative shape. It is located in a dielectric bath (oil of various viscosities, depending on the application) which is ionised by the discharge.
The movable machine head carries out movements along the Z axis and rotation in the C axis, while the table executes movements along the X and Y axes. These movements and an optionally applied rotational axis make the process ideal for all possible shape contours and for the processing of hard-to- machine materials.
